Top Ten Words to Describe the United States

America is an excellent country, or a horrible country, depends on how you look at it. We are one of the top economies in the world, but we don't have free health care yet. We may have invented many things such as cars, but we're also one of the most obese countries in the world.

The Top Ten

1 Revolutionary

Who was the first country to break away and completely break down other nations and their political beliefs and use a mixture of those as the backbone of our nation so it could thrive and succeed and prove our enemies that we could make it from nothing? The United States of America did.

Honestly we have been through so much yet we still stand tall, and with Trump as president we need to be united as one revolutionary country, now is no the time to play the he said she said game. Now in the time to be Americans!

They didn't make it from nothing, they were English that travelled there and took over. If anything it means English are revolutionary

What? What country invented both apple and windows, which are the best electronics companies IN THE WORLD? ? !

2 Idiots

America is not filled with idiots but rather kind, intelligent, and brave people who have mad many great advances in knowledge and science. We have great medical technology and we were the first to walk on the moon.we also created a pretty good system where people are free to make their ownchoices and control their own fate. We managed to create a country with hard work and now we are free, strong, and fairyly wealthy or at least enough to provide for its people. I don't see how America or its people are idiotic.

Man, this is the best word to describe these guys. As PetSounds said, your stereotypical American is extremely prevelant compared to the small amount of nice, kind, and civilized individuals. These stereotypes are true, so for any intelligent and sane foreigners out there, if you want to save some brain cells, don't visit the U.S. Any good person will know that the joke of a country is full of idiots.

The people that I met on my last visit to California were actually very polite, and did a lot to make my family welcome there. There are some parts of Britain which don't have this virtue. And forgive my smugness, but a few of them openly said they loved the accent!

When I added this item, I was referring to the stereotypical American. Real Americans are respectful, and most of us are smart. Sorry if you took it the wrong way.

3 Powerful

Because chuck Norris and John Cena live in america

We are the best Country in the world and no doubt about it

Number 1 military and the world's sole superpower.

Yo yo. Honey sing is bast of bast

4 Large

Yeah, the people are large...

Wait, you meant the size of the country itself!?

... As well as Canada. This word describes a lot of Americans, as well.

But Russia is still bigger...


5 Misunderstood

Obviously america is misunderstood because I read through every single comment and some of these people are so negative towards America! America is just like anywhere else (pretty much) just we're called Americans and we have a democracy. we have good things and bad things, just like Japan, France, Spain, Canada, anywhere. so instead of everyone talking crap about America to make yourself feel better, look at yourself and your country and think, are we perfect with no flaws at all? yep that's what I thought. I'm sorry for ranting but I have to get back to my homework so bye. :3

6 Convenient
7 Obesity

Almost all the kids in the schools I have been at are at now are not fat or obese most of them are a normal size or underweight, barely any if any people even try to be skinny and they still eat their full share of food.

I don't think obese describes america but I do think it is becoming an issue. However I tjink it in much better than starving to death like people do in some other places.

I have never met an obese person in America. If people are saying 1/3 is obese, than how come I don't see them? Like anywhere.

A THIRD of the U.S. population is obese. Compared to other developed countries, that is pretty embarrassing...

8 Charitable

Tragic earthquake in Nepal YESTERDAY.
India will have its teams there first, they are by far the closest, US has more sophisticated rescue equipment, already on the way, and already leading financial aid effort.
Before that, pick your disaster, Philippine Hurricane, Indonesian Tsunami, US gave much more time, effort, personnel, equipment, and money than whatever pathetic hellhole you live in.

America gives so much to other nations for example, Africa and even though they can't really pay us back or trade with them we continue to give because as Americans we have the opppurtuntity to give and keep giving.

Tell me, when was the last time the U.S. Helped another nation. Even if you could, other countries already did that as well, so if anything, THEY should also receive some regonition.

Americans give more to charity than any other country.

9 Obama

Obama is great; yet, people seem to lack political enlightenment because how can Obama pass any law if it can't get to his desk?! Unlike the progressive America, our political parties in the House and Senate go head in head with each other, forgetting that COMPROMISE is key to success. However, everyone now seems to seek their own interest in America, even America itself. (I'll blame your government teachers and the media bias which induces ignorance)

The most anti-American president belongs on a way lower rank than this.

The most anti-American president doesn't belong on this list.

Obama: the person Americans blame everything on

10 Young

I'm so young like a toddeler

The Contenders

11 Imperfect

No one is perfect.. especially us in America, we do many things wrong. But, guess what? Everyone makes mistakes.

There's no doubt we're not perfect. Every country has their flaws, even America.

No country is perfect but america is a really great place nonetheless.

It's part of human nature, even Americans have their limits

12 Democracy

You can propose a bill anytime you want to. You can vote on your representative and senators, and you can vote for the president. So everyone who passes the actual bill should be someone you're okay with. At least the greater of two evils. Why do you need to see the bills? You have representation. We barely pass any regardless, and that's because we can no longer agree on anything.

It could be better, but we act as if our governments much worse than it actually is. At least we're a democracy. And yes, we really are a democracy!

Famous quote from America's staunch ally Churchill: "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others."

Actually, the United States system of government is a republic; some similar ideas but not a true democracy.

13 Diverse

America may call themselves a "melting pot" all they want, though the fact is that other countries are equally as diverse, if not more. Hell, other countries actually embrace and welcome it; their melting pot actually melts. This is obviously totally unlike those racist Americans.

A Free spirited and extremely diverse nation which raised free individuals the problems America encounters are not so much as the problems humans generally have.

Um Hello? Our country was made by different groups of people coming together and your saying we aren't diverse? Do you know what the word diverse means?

I think america is very diverse and getting more so. Also I have never met a racist person in the US and I live in america, and proud of it.

14 Successful

I think America is highly successful. To build ourselfs up from nothing through hardships and become a strong, fairly wealthy, country that can provide for and protect its people.

15 Freedom

I love America. I think it is very free and here we are given lots of options. I think I am blessed to be born in such a wonderful place. I will not say we don't have issues but to be honest there is no where in the world that is perfect. Why do u think so many people come here from other countries? And u complain about websites spying on u or the nsa, well newsflash Websites tell u when u sighn up that u give that right over I'm pretty sure and if your uncomfortable with it then don't use them! And fyi the nsa stands for national security agency to keep the people who live in america safe from dangerous stuff like terrorists. They may have even saved your life and u may not have known so maybe you should be gratefull. I am happy to live in such a wonderful country. One that can provide for its people and give them the freedom to make choices and have the carreers they chose and to control their own destiny. In some places women don't even have rights but in america they do. Songs ...more

The NSA spies on people who almost always deserve it. Far greater privacy violations are committed 24/7 by Google, your bank, your school, and just about every software company, and I would not be a bit surprised if TTT is doing loads of illegal tracking too.

Do you have any idea how painful and sad we had to fought for our freedom for centuries. Freedom isn't easy to earn but we don't give up.

Google, MSN, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, etc, all track, log, and record everything that everybody in every country does; get used to it!

16 Unhealthy

The government should control what people eat and how much they eat.

This is a lie, not everyone is unhealthy in America.

This is especially true for our lack of free healthcare.

The government can't tell me what to eat freedom.

17 La-la Land

Magical place full of idiots and unicorns



They live in a La-La-Land

18 Racist

Tronald dump

19 Beautiful

Disgusting? I guess that is your valueless opinion. Please feel free to stay away, don't accept any money from the US, don't accept any assistance of any kind, don't use anything invented here, and especially please reverse any border defenses that we may have made for your grandparents over the past 100 years. We certainly won't miss you.

No.. why must you run us down that way.. ? We are not disgusting, sure we eat a lot, so what? I'm sure and I know people in other countries eat as much as we do. Yes, our president is horrible.. I dislike Obama, and I surely DO NOT want Hillary as our next president... but seriously? Disgusting?

No, the people there are disgusting...

Wait, you meant the countryside. Oh, damn! I feel for it again. Yeah, the country can be quite buetiful, I admit, but so do other countries, so it doesn't mean much.

Our United States has fallen so low towards the pit that China and Russia are better, same with Europe and even Great Britain, Thanks Obama and 9/11.

20 Ghetto

The ghetto makes you strong and independent. - HawaiianPanda

If we ain't have no ghetto we wouldent be here

Stfu please & thanks

Its true hahaa

21 Dreams

We Americans had a dream of having freedom from Britain Andy the government itself since the 17th century. We Americans go by the American dream. We have fought are independence for centuries( men and women) we all have equal rights.( except for kids). In cas you don't know I'm a teenager

We follow the American dream. For ages American men and women have died to make this country safe and free. And we honor them for keeping the american Dream.

22 Native

Not rly because we “STOLE” America from the native Americans

23 Violent

True that the firearm homicide rate is higher than the Eurozone, but outside of the inner cities, the USA is one of the safest places in the world.
For overall crime rate, the USA is only #22, with Canada at #10, and the UK at #4. Iceland is #1, but maybe they get stir-crazy being cooped-up indoors for half the year.
The forcible rape rate in the USA is lower than Belgium and New Zealand, among others, and is less than half the rate of Sweden.

Funny that the OP, TA won't print the inconvenient truth that this is false.

Highest crime rate out of all first-world countries. Pathetic!

Violence is always the answer

24 Awesome

America is a wonderful place filled with beauty and freedom. Almost everone who lives there will greet you with a kind smile. We were built out of hard work and struggles and managed to build into a great and powerful, free place that can provide for its people and allows them to make their own choices. And I think that is pretty awesome.

I know I'm going to get a lot of downvotes for saying this but... I love America! I live there after all.

I think there might've been a mistake here.

25 Self-Absorbed

I think America helps a lot of other places out all the time. We are sending aid to other places all the time and the people in america donate to several good causes in and out of country. Also, is it wrong for a country to protect itself or try to fix its own problems first? There are stereotypes about people in america being self absorbed but it is not teue, the people who live in America are kind and caring and generous.

Not remotely correct, the USA gives substantially more foreign aid than any other country, and also its citizens give more private donations to charities than any other country.

I am American, and I understand what other countries go through... Somewhat, I don't just think about us Americans. After all, we don't have any huge wars going on over here.. -sigh- Not everyone is like this in America... :(

Got the blinkers on and can only see what is going on within their own country. don't know there are other Countries in this world and what is going on within them.
